What Is Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is the implementation of polices, processes, and technologies intended to identify, assess, and mitigate cyber threats, and to proactively minimize vulnerabilities to them. Specific elements and actions range from antivirus software to timely implementation of vendor-provided, tested software patches and updates.

Business information systems, from user devices to cloud-based resources and the networks that connect them, are always at risk. Threats range from external ransomware attacks to disruption by disgruntled current or former employees. Your cybersecurity measures are therefore critical elements of your risk assessment and management policies and practices.

Cybersecurity is a constant battle against forces that are continuously growing and evolving in number, nature, and effectiveness. The costs of comprehensive, effective cybersecurity measures can be high, especially for smaller businesses. However, a single successful attack can disrupt business operations for prolonged periods or damage a company’s reputation beyond repair.

SOC 2 compliance requires significant operational and technological commitments to cybersecurity and privacy protections. Achieving and sustaining continuous compliance with SOC 2 can therefore also greatly improve your company’s cybersecurity and ability to resist and withstand cyber threats and attacks.
